NORTH WINS ALL-STAR FOOTBALL GAME
Seniors Michael Pietropola, Nick Marple, Kieron Smethers, and Nick Levindoski finished their high school football careers at the 25th annual District IV North-South All-Star football game on Friday, June 26.

The four Wellsboro seniors made an impact in the game as Pietropola scored two touchdowns. Smethers was the North’s offensive MVP, and Marple was the game’s MVP as he intercepted two passes on the night and had five tackles to help the North squad win, 34-30.

COMMUNITY EVENT COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING
What about you? Do you want to make a difference for good in our community? We all look and see the needs, but many of us are not quite sure what we have to offer or how we would actually use our skill sets to change things? If this is you, then today’s broadcast is one you won’t want to miss.

There are many needs facing Tioga County, Pennsylvania. What if we could use our gifts and talents to make a serious impact? Johnny and Juanita Burguson join us today on Home Page with some great news: one of the key components in this week’s events is “Skill-Based Training.” In some parts of the world, this concept is changing everything.

THE AMERICAN DIET – IT’S TO DIE FOR
Many people assume that the Standard American Diet is healthful. That assumption is inherently accepted by the majority of citizens because of our heavy reliance on the expertise of government authorities such as the USDA. We need to take a closer look at their recommendations in relation to the general declining health in American society.
The SAD is centered on chicken, red meat, cheese and other animal products, sweets, and processed grains, particularly wheat. To make matters worse, the typical person eating these foods consumes a tremendous amount of extracted vegetable oil. Not only does oil supply lots of empty calories, it also contains a suspected carcinogen – called 3-MCPD, monochloropropane – that forms when we heat extracted oil. Many of us cook all vegetables with oil, use it for dressings and add it to almost everything we eat, even the good foods. Keep this in mind – all oil contains 120 empty calories of fat per tablespoon.

JULY 3RD IS FIRST FRIDAY!
Each Wellsboro First Friday is a little different, but we always have plenty to do, hear, and see – and lots of First Friday shopping and dining deals. On July 3rd, we’ll have goats, puppies and dogs, (and maybe kittens), for kids of all ages to enjoy! There will also be free art, music, games and activities in downtown Wellsboro, starting at 5:00 PM. (Stay up-to-date on First Friday happenings through the Facebook page.)

A JOYFUL LEGACY OF MUSIC
“Life is like a piano; the white keys represent happiness and the black show sadness.  But as you go through life’s journey, remember that the black keys also create music.” ~ Author Unknown

Last year, for the first time, Thomas Putnam of Hamilton Gibson brought pianos to Wellsboro’s Main Street. Many talented individuals came together to make this possible for our community. The process began with the donation of the pianos, continued through their restoration and decoration, and finally concluded with their placement on the street. Hometown residents and visitors alike took advantage of sitting down to play a tune. Now, once again, these pianos will give us all an opportunity to celebrate the people and the music of our community.

David further discussed the nature of our community’s love of music–for both the listener and the musician. He also touched on how we as a community can honor Katie Brennan by continuing her legacy of loving and serving others. Katie went home to her Lord on June 25th, 2015. For over twenty years Katie was involved with many local organizations, such as Hamilton Gibson as choir director, Trinity Lutheran Church as the elementary music teacher, and St. Paul’s Catholic Church as the organist and cantor. As music teacher, Katie taught the children at Trinity Lutheran School songs that helped teach them how to live. Her love of God, love of life, and love of others blessed all who knew her. As Katie would remind us, J.O.Y. is a great acronym to remember how to prioritize our lives–Jesus, Others, and You–putting Christ first and foremost, and others above yourself. Katie exemplified this lifestyle, leaving family and friends an admirable legacy.
